On June 21, 2020 at 12:30 pm deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, together with members from the Marion County SWAT team, initiated a traffic stop on a Silver/Grey Dodge Charger with Alabama license plate in Stayton. Inside the vehicle they located two men wanted for murder in Alabama.
On June 19, 2020, arrest warrants had been issued for Frederic Rogers, 22, and John Legg, 19, for the offense of Capitol Murder related to a mass shooting in Valhermoso Springs, near Huntsville, Alabama.
Rogers and Legg were taken into custody, without incident, and lodged at the Marion County Jail. They are currently awaiting extradition back to Alabama.
MCSO would like to thank the local FBI office and Aumsville PD for their assistance with the safe capture of these two fugitives from Alabama.
